|Eric Gill: the Engravings
Everybody knows Eric Gill from his splendid typefaces: Gill Sans, Perpetua, Joanna. But apart from the fine typographer Gill was a sculptor, a stonemason and a graphic artist as well. In the more private sphere he was a very religious, devout man (combining this with a prolific sexual life). In this beautiful book, Christopher Skelton brings the complete graphical work. Book plates, illustrations for The Book of Songs, for The Canterbury Tales, initial lettering, etc, 993 items in all.
